Saw Stanley Clarke with Return to Forever in Philly during the Romantic Warrior tour - summer '76 if my addled memory serves me correctly.

I sort of remember two things:

1. Clarke's fingers seemed to be a foot long.
2. Al diMeola was an absolute animal at all of 22 years old(he topped his RTF material with Elegant Gypsy - Race With The Devil On A Spanish Highway, and the epic Friday Night in San Francisco collaboration with Paco De Lucia and John McLaughlin.)

Wow - thanks, looks like I have to go dust off the vinyl.
